The popular gaming laptop Steam Deck has been optimized to work better when connected to an external monitor, resulting in improved performance in the blockbuster sci-fi game Starfield.

This is made possible thanks to the “Steam Deck OS 3.4.3” preview update. It’s available on the Steam Deck OS Preview channel, where you can try out new features that are currently being tested, and you can join from the Settings > System > System Update channel.

There are two major new features in this release. One is variable refresh rate (VRR) and HDR support when an external monitor is connected. HDR can be enabled if your monitor supports it, and VRR can be enabled from the display settings if you have a compatible USB-C adapter.

Another says that the Steam Deck’s standard color rendering has been tweaked to “emulate the sRGB color gamut,” resulting in “slightly warmer, more vibrant colors.” sRGB is an international standard color space, which is also the de facto standard in the Windows environment.

This change is not permanent, we are also adding settings that allow users to adjust the screen’s color vibrancy and color temperature.

Another feature is that the graphics driver has been updated to improve performance and functionality in many games. The most important of which is the improved performance of Starfield.
